Julian Draxler has been awarded the Golden Ball at the 2017 Confederations Cup as Germany beat Chile in the final on Sunday.

FIFA confirmed the player's success as Timo Werner earned the Golden Boot. 

The Golden Glove award went to Claudio Bravo, per FIFA.

Germany secured the title with a 1-0 victory in Russia, fielding a team of youngsters and burgeoning talents.

Draxler was named player of the tournament as he captained his country to success.

Lars Stindl was the hero in the final, pouncing in the first half to score after Chile's defence collapsed.

A bad error from Marcelo Diaz opened the door for the Germans to secure the crown.

Werner collected the top scorer award after finishing level with Stindl and Leon Goretzka on three goals, but his higher assist count gave him the accolade.
